I am managing a cybercafe and I for the 6th time I had to shut down the whole place because of a god-forsaken malware I decided to look for an alternative which would satisfy these requirements:
1. Safe - No Viruses, malware, spyware, or any other whatever stuff that kills a computer system and your peace of mind.
2. Free - I don't want to pay again everytime I reformat my computer.
3. Satisfying - A system that will let me enjoy my computer peripherals to the fullest.
And they were all satisfied. Not by an antivirus, not by a firewall protection software. But an operating system.
Ubuntu is the one I picked.
It took me only 4 days to know the DIYs of the system. I started off 2 months ago, and now, I'm even getting people converted to Ubuntu.
I still use Windows XP, but that is only for my client machines on the cybercafe. My server computers hold Ubuntu as well as my pendrive.
What you will like to Ubuntu is that it is straightforward in giving you the feel that you don't need a lot of codes to learn. And you don't need to tinker to all those programming languages if you're a total plain computer user.
Ubuntu also comes with a bundled freebies of software you would normally pay thousands for their Windows counterpart. The bundle includes:
1. The OpenOffice Suite, which by now can open even Office 2007 files.
2. GIMP, which is the best free alternative to Photoshop.
3. Mozilla Firefox, the safest way to browse the internet.
and many more.
If you really wanted some software, you may use the add/remove feature of Ubuntu 9.04 or the Ubuntu Software Center of 9.10 to install whatever software you'll need.
Newbie or not, Ubuntu has an edge now. Linux evolved into something revolutionary. I suggest and recommend you to move to the revolution too.
Damian Ondore, I now work for Canonical after converting to Ubuntu from Red Hat/Mandriva.
I started using Linux seriously at university, having been attracted to it purely because it was different and had experience of the command line with Sun OS. I wanted the power of a command line for my physics work. I ordered copies from the site. At the time, the only way to get Linux was to download, which was too expensive and time consuming or to buy a Linux magazine which shipped a cd/dvd with many distributions. Because I had a slow connection to the internet, Ubuntu was less useful at the time because I thought I couldn't make use of all of the rpm's I had built up over the years.
I used all the distributions, changing vendor from month to month and trying out different features, desktops, windows managers and generally using Linux as an introduction to programming. As I got more and more into the programming side, my main reason for using linux was that each distribution came with a ready made environment for making software.
After University, I started a career in Sales. Now I help sell support for all of the users who need guaranteed responses.
I was trying to make a live cd for music production with a friend back in 2006 when I came across UbuntuStudio. I tried it and was amazed at how much progress Ubuntu had made. After about a months use, I decided to stick with it.
